How often do you (or SO) talk to the ex?

I have a question - how often do you or your SO talk to the ex in a week, to coordinate on kid things? And if, like me, you have not been married before and have no ex that you necessarily need (or want) to talk to on a regular basis, how does it make you feel?
I mean, I know things "come up" that warrant discussion, but sometimes, for example, the ex will call and chat with my bf about how her son (who is 9) is doing, what he did that day, what he ate, etc. instead of talking to her son and asking him herself. She will talk to the son after her little "pow wow" with my bf, but usually it's pretty brief. Does that seem odd to anyone else? Or is it just me?
Also, sometimes she'll call and talk about the DUMBEST things...like the "schedule". It's the SAME schedule, week after week, even I know it by heart (and heck, if I didn't, we made an excel spreadsheet of it for everyone, so she can just look it up if she has a question). It just seems totally unnecessary for her to call all the time. I would understand calling to talk to her son, but all this other stuff just seems unnecessary to me, and frankly, it kind of upsets me. But what do you guys think?
Should I even talk to my bf about it? Is there a compromise I should suggest? Or is it just one of those things I have to accept. And if so, what are some coping strategies?
